42nd Anniversary Rewatch - B2 Shadow
trevor travis
The episode: Barney Two - Shadow (Carry On Space Mafia)
The date: Tuesday, April 14th, 2019
The time: 7.45pm UK time

In which there’s so much going on in a terrific episode. The major two plot strands are Blake finding himself on the wrong side of morality and not giving a jot about it; and a malign influence taking over Orac. While this is going on, Vila has the thrill and hangover of a lifetime, and will be lucky to finish the episode with his teeth intact and not part of a necklace.

Episode in a word: Moon-discs!
Characters to cheer: Gan, for showing that he has a conscious and there are levels he would prefer not to stoop to, such as getting caught up with the Space Mafia. Of course, Blake dismisses his arguments and pushes on regardless. In some ways, it’s a precursor of what happens again in three episodes’ time, this time with tragic consequences. Oh, and also Cally, for regaining much of her original spirit here – especially when she holds Space City to ransom to free the others. It’s great to see these two characters given something a bit more meaty to do, at last. Bravo Chris Boucher!
Character to boo: Sorry, Vila, while I think you’re terrific, this is not your finest hour – the blame for Hanna’s death lays firmly at your door.
Avon/Cally ‘Shipping Alert: “Whose is this?” demands Avon. He stops in his tracks when he finds out the Moon Disc belongs to Cally.
Recognisable Face: Karl Howman (Bek) played Jacko the painter, the lead character in the 1980s sitcom Brush Strokes. It was actually a pretty decent comedy, although it went on for a few series too long.
Is Soolin looking lovely this week?: Yes.
Best exchange: Lots of brilliant dialogue in this one, but it’s impossible to ignore: VILA: “Where are all the good guys?” BLAKE: “You could be looking at them.” AVON: “What a very depressing thought.”

Blake's 7 will return in… Carry On Mister Smooth.

This episode is a fashion catastrophe, of course. Too many sets of karate pyjamas on display, plus Avon embracing Baco-foil chic.

There's nothing wrong with the karate outfit that a certain rather nice computer expert wears...us ladies would have liked the top button to have been undone just a little......and that lovely silver top is a lovely soft leather and very nice to touch (i think I may have mentioned that before, but just in case....) and then, of course there are those lovely thigh high boots....
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

To be fair, I never really got over reading the Agatha Christie classic 'The Man in the Bacofoil Suit'

littlesue - I think there are specialist websites for that sort of thing and probably mail (or male) order catalogues too.

the good guys line is the one I used at the end of my shadow novelisation And anyone notice, Bek is nowhere near the blaster controls, he fires the blasters with a talk back button, I addressed this in the book

Thanks Hugbot. The way they destroy the moon discs makes this episode a bit worrying!

Why is the date for the rewatch for last year? Surely it would read 14 April 2020?
